E-Commerce Parking Exchange Zone available at Town Hall

E-Commerce Sign

On June 7th, 2023 the Town of Bethlehem in partnership with the Bethlehem Police Department installed an E-Commerce Parking Exchange Zone.  When meeting others to buy or sell something from an internet post or app, it is important to take necessary safety precautions.  Our designated E-Commerce parking exchange zone is under 24 hour Police dispatch and recorded video surveillance.  The parking zone is clearly marked with a sign in the first parking spot closest to the east side of the Bethlehem Town Hall building.

We recommend, if possible, to bring someone with you and offer to exchange money with an app instead of using cash or checks.  If you choose not to use our E-Commerce parking exchange zone, it is important to meet in a public place, well populated and preferably during the daylight hours.
